China ‘certainly has biological warfare programs’ | Sky News AustraliaThe Chinese Communist Party is trying to turn the consequences of COVID-19 into a “weaponised strategy for itself” according to Executive Director of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute Peter Jennings.\n\nMr Jennings said although COVID-19 may not have been deliberately released, China “most certainly does have biological warfare programs”.\n\nThrough the spread of the virus, China is trying to “gain advantage against other countries,” while also trying to “distract its population”.\n\nHe told Sky News host Sharri Markson, once Beijing became aware of the existence and the severity of the virus, it was “making calculated steps to work out how it could emerge from this crisis more successful” than other nations.\n\n“There has been lies and duplicity aplenty from the Communist Party”.\n\nImage: AP Notice the coordinated attack against China today and yesterday led by Murdoch media worldwide.

The world needs 'cool heads, not a cold war' with China | Sky News AustraliaAs China is Australia’s largest trading partner and a close ally, the government should “take a moment of pause before poking the panda” according to Assistant Editor of the West Australian Jenna Clarke.\n\nWestern Australia in 2019 exported $95 billion worth of goods to China, while the country’s resources sector is heavily reliant upon the Chinese market.\n\nHowever, in recent weeks economic and diplomatic tensions between the two nations has reached fever-pitch after Australia called for an international investigation into the origins of the coronavirus, and China’s ambassador responded by threatening a consumer boycott of Australian exports.\n\n“When China sneezes, the world catches a cold”.\n\n“As we mop up this health emergency, we need cool heads not a cold war,” she said.\n\nMs Clarke said the health crisis has forced Australia to consider “widening our economic basket instead of putting most of our eggs into China”.\n\n“We should take a lead out of the mining and resources book in order to pursue new ideas and new markets like India and Indonesia”.\n\nImage: AP jennamclarke China is NOT & NEVER will be Australia's ally. jennamclarke Australia’s sovereignty is far more important than Chinese money. jennamclarke ‘Close ally’?

If China has 'nothing to hide' it would welcome independent investigation | Sky News AustraliaIf China has nothing to hide it, it would welcome an independent inquiry into the origins of the COVID-19 crisis, according to ANU professor Mark Kenny.\n\nRelations between Australia and China have soured since the Coalition suggested the world launches an independent, global investigation into the origins of the virus.\n\nThe US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has backed Australia's call for an international inquiry and accused China of lax biosecurity standards.\n\n'There is a significant amount of evidence that this came from that laboratory in Wuhan,' Mr Pompeo told American television network ABC.\n\nChina has disputed this and indicated the disease may have originated from a live animal wet market in the Chinese city of Wuhan.\n\nProfessor Kenny told Sky News it would be in China's interest 'for the truth to come out.'\n\n\n\n\n\n markgkenny markgkenny Lots of skeletons in lots of closets would be my guess, as to why they don’t want an independent enquire. markgkenny It doesn’t need to be independent. China is a member of the UN security council and it would be obliged to answer questions if they investigated. This is a biological weapon and they should have restricted flights. imho they will need to answer questions.

China lied about origin of coronavirus, leaked intelligence report saysA damning dossier leaked from the “Five Eyes” intelligence alliance claims that China lied to the world about human-to-human transmission of the virus, disappeared whistleblowers and refused to hand over virus samples so the West could make a vaccine.
